I knit the "Give it a Whirl Bag" from Creative Knitting, July 2006, with Patons Classic Merino in Rosewood (variegated) - a quick knit, finished in a day, but...I didn't like the results. It was too floppy and I didn't like the way the colors pooled. So...what to do? - throw it in a washer full of hot water of course. Now I love the way it pooled, but I don't know what it is! Is it a flower pot?
Or, is it a hat? This yarn was actually the same yarn I used on the scarf he is wearing, but it looks completely different.
Is it really just a smaller, felted version of the "Give it a Whirl" Bag?
What do you think?

I still have Three Bags Full by Leonie Swann (the Whoduknit January book) sitting on my computer desk because I was referring to it during our discussion. So..
"She's not stupid," murmered Miss Maple, more to herself than to any of the other sheep. "Beth's not stupid. She thinks too much of souls and not enough of human beings, but she's not stupid."

The kids at school were wound up tight today - Valentine's Day is one of their favorite days. They just love exchanging Valentine cards. We couldn't get out on the playground which was frozen solid so there was no running off that energy. The room mothers were in for a party with games, crafts and snacks. After finally winding down and getting them on the bus, it was wonderful to come home to a box of chocolates, flowers, and dinner cooked by DH himself! Hope your day was special too!
